Master in Applied Ecology

Applied ecology is a crucial aspect of knowledge in today's world, taking into account one of the main challenges facing Man today: global changes and the consequent loss of biodiversity in ecosystems. In this way, it is intended with this Master in Applied Ecology that the student acquires an in-depth and specialized understanding of the main ecological processes, the issues related to the loss and management of Biodiversity, as well as its importance, including the interactions between the different components, biotic and abiotic, of the Ecosystems themselves. To this end, this Master offers a set of 6 Curricular Units of mandatory choice and 5 Curricular Units of flexible choice (Free Option I to V): this will allow for solid training in precise and essential tools for the analysis, management and conservation of biodiversity, namely experimental planning and ecological data analysis, not only of wild and urban biological resources, but also competences in science communication and learning outcomes; on the other hand, the flexibility of the study plan will allow each student to adapt their curriculum to their training interests, choosing areas such as bio-entrepreneurship or management or any other area offered to the 2nd cycle of studies by the University of Aveiro. The Curricular Unit Dissertation/Project/Internship will deal with an original theme in the area of ??applied ecology, at the student's choice, which may take the form of an internship in another external entity, namely companies, nationally or internationally, with whom the UA establishes collaboration protocols.
